About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

The National Museum of Natural History Paris and Editions Reliefs have co-published the Museum Manifesto, a work that wishes to raise awareness "of the role and the need for natural history in contemporary societies". Upon his appointment as President of the Museum in 2015, Bruno David, opened a reflection on these issues with the establishment of a Natural History Committee bringing together sociologists, philosophers, naturalists and historians to reflect on the place of natural history in current debates in our society. Chaired by Philippe Taquet, the Committee in this essay charts the rise of obscurantism and the weakening of scientific discourse. But it is above all an appeal to the elected and leaders to "consider natural history and all the intellectual, social, cultural, economic, ethical and vital issues it encompasses"

Summary in French:
Le Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle et les éditions Reliefs publient le Manifeste du Muséum, un ouvrage engagé qui souhaite éveiller les consciences « au rôle et à la nécessité de l’histoire naturelle dans les sociétés contemporaines ». Dès sa nomination à la présidence du Muséum en 2015, Bruno David, a ouvert une réflexion sur ces questions avec la mise en place d’un Comité d’histoire naturelle réunissant des sociologues, philosophes, naturalistes et historiens pour réfléchir à la place de l’Histoire naturelle dans les débats qui agitent notre société. Présidé par Philippe Taquet, le Comité se mobilise à travers cet essai pour faire face à la montée des obscurantismes et à l’affaiblissement du discours scientifique. Mais c’est avant tout un appel lancé aux élus et dirigeants afin de « tenir compte de l’histoire naturelle et de tous les enjeux intellectuels, sociaux, culturels, économiques, éthiques et vitaux qu’elle englobe ».
